Michelle Obama wore a beautiful Caroline Herrera gown to the state dinner honouring French president Francois Hollande last night.

The dress, complete with a black lace bodice, full blue gown and black velvet belt was designed by the Venezuelan designer and was sure to make Mrs. Obama the centre of attention at the event.

Hollande attended the event alone following the highly publicised break-down of his relationship with Valerie Trierweiler.
